Today’s post is a little bit different. I’d like to share a song with you, and so I’ve made a little video:
Apologies for the squeaking of the pedal! I told you it wasn’t going to be perfect!
Here are the lyrics in case you had trouble with my accent:
Image smashed long ago,
The mirror cracked from side to side,
Leaving pain in my soul, fragmented hopes and dreams,
Memories of innocence defiled.
No way back: I try to fix it just to find
The glass is shattered- pieces missing, lost in time.
Is there hope? Is there an answer,
Or is it smashed beyond repair?
Is it all meaningless, or does it have a purpose?
In all the heartache were you there?
Were you there?
No return to how it was,
But somehow as I look to you,
I see, from the heap of broken pieces at my feet,
You are making something new.
Incomplete- too soon to tell what it will be
But slowly I can feel your love rebuilding me.
There must be hope. There must be an answer.
It can’t be smashed beyond repair.
I feel your power in me rebuilding what was broken.
A work in progress, but you’re there.
You are there.
One day it will be complete.
I’ll see your purpose and your plan.
The final piece will fall into its place,
Guided by your loving hand.
Like a phoenix, beauty rises from the dust.
One day I’ll see it; till then I’ll have to trust
But I know, there is hope, and you are the answer.
Nothing is smashed beyond repair.
There is no brokenness beyond your restoration.
For in this fallen world, you’re there.
You are there.
